There is a good service across our network
A growing, and vibrant, community of rail partnerships and groups across Great Britain.
All over the country, groups work with communities to get the most from their railways. With the help of train companies, they promote social inclusion and sustainable travel, champion local improvements, and bring stations back to life.
Anyone can get involved. From those that use the train, to community groups and local businesses.
Volunteers give as much time as they want. And there's something for all. From gardening and cleaning to providing community information and safety education.
Community Rail Network supports the groups and partnerships who connect communities with their railways.
It represents more than 60 Community Rail Partnerships and over 1,000 station adoption groups. In turn, they help deliver social, environmental, and economic benefits through local development.
The Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership (DCRP) brings together local authorities, GWR and others to support the counties’ branch lines – benefiting local communities and the region’s economy alike.
The Severnside CRP is a Community Interest Company and covers all the lines radiating from Bristol. The main aspect of their work is ensuring that the 25, mainly unstaffed, local stations provide a safe and welcoming environment.
The North Downs CRP works with the community to encourage people to travel by train.
From engaging with train companies to improve services to working with schools and businesses, their vision is that everyone should feel the local railway is theirs.
TransWilts Community Rail supports the Swindon to Westbury route.
They aim to represent local rail users and encourage and promote more use among those living and working in Wiltshire.
The Three Rivers Rail Partnership is a group of local authorities, people, and train companies. It works to promote train and bus services and improve stations and services.
The train routes it covers run alongside, or cross, the Avon, Itchen, and Test rivers. The ‘Three Rivers’.
Worcestershire CRP works with local businesses, communities, and train companies to improve the 18 stations in the county and encourage rail use.
Through these links, it aims to help make local rail sustainable, viable, and enjoyable.
